    I left Stoke on Trent in 1987 and I have lived in Merseyside side ever since. I used to watch Stoke and Port Vale, but stopped watching Stoke after relegation in the mid 80’s. It was generally not a happy place the Victoria Ground full of too many fans spoiling for a fight with the visitors and singing abuse etc. To be fair, that wasn’t uncommon. In contrast I enjoy Vale Park and although there are some problem fans it is generally a far more pleasant experience.

    And I can still watch top football from time to time. I have been to several Merseyside derbies where the behaviour was light years away from the attitude some Stoke fans brought to Vale Park and have in general. I have been to Liverpool v Paris and Liverpool v West Ham this season and I’m off to watch Barcelona in the Nou Camp in February. In 2017 I watched a Montrose game and they are now my Scottish team. So the point is I can enjoy Port Vale and still watch the very highest level of football live a few times a season as well. I don’t miss Stoke City and I have lost my mojo when it comes finding something positive to say about them now as well.
